color theory: we heart garnet red

Leave a comment

it’s the color of passion and love. garnet red is classic elegance, sensual beauty, and bright cheer all wrapped into one jewel toned beauty. we love the way red gives any complexion a warm glow and a soft, goddess-esque beauty. super versatile, it looks great on it’s own, paired with other hues, or with classic with black and white- think a great red sweater with a perfectly checked houndstooth jacket, over your favorite pair of dark skinnies and layered up with all of your favorite accessories.

our favorite dramatic movie moments always seem to feature a striking garnet red; remember Satine’s gorgeous trumpet silhouette dress in Moulin Rouge, or the fabulous Strawberry Festival costumes in To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. it’s special, striking, always sassy, and always memorable…


Burberry Brit’s delectable crimson leather Grendon jacket starts with a perfectly fitted shape, and gives us all the great details we swoon over in a leather piece- quilted detailing, lots of pockets, and just enough hardware to make u feel totally badass.

Francesca’s always puts s in a good mood with cheerful and sassy looks; we are swooning over their precious Bridgeport Anchor Watch in red, white, and blue.

we can always look to Kate Spade for luxe classics, and their Cedar Street bag gives us just that; we love the sweet envelope-inspired design, the on-trend chain strap detail, and of course the color!

we all remember our favorite moments from 2001’s Moulin Rouge, especially this classic scene with a stunning look on Nicole Kidman as Satine, designed by Catherine Martin and Angus Strathie.

Erin Gallagher’s birthstone gems are always a delight, and the Eleanor earring is a favorite, with a perfectly sized hoop (not too big, not too small), and a gorgeous pair of garnets for a lucky January baby.

Winter Kate’s sweet and girly silk turtledove dress is everything a girl could hope for in a playful little slip. we are imagining it layered under a cardigan with tights and boots for a winter look that is sure to turn heads.

Pedro Garcia Virgie’s glamorous shoes are quickly becoming favorites. their crimson castoro wedge is a gorgeous silhouette, funky detailing, and a great color, all in one gorgeous shoe.

we can’t forget Vida, Noxema, and ChiChi in 1995’s fabulous  To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. the girls inspired a dusty old town (and us!) to shake off tradition and be your own amazing self!
